This plug-in for Adobe Photoshop® CC is able to correct the distortion of ALPA lenses from Schneider, Rodenstock and Zeiss easily, quickly and at ultimate quality level. Besides the conventional correction the tool is able to alter shifted images, which is not common in many other tools. It is based on photogrammetric principles and got developed together with the University of Berne. The possible corrections are potentially on a sub-pixel level. Below you will find for download the manual (English/German) and resources for the installation on Mac as well as Windows.
For the download of the plugin itself, please see the link panel. You will find the plugin for Mac OS X and Windows, the correction profiles and the manual in our Media Asset section.
Remarks Since February 2012 the 64-bit version for Apple OS X (Photoshop CS 5 and later) is available.
